Welcome To On The Avenue Home Decor & Gifts. Years ago my husband and I bought our first home. It was a very old home and needed a lot of tender love and care. I had the vision of what I wanted and my husband was able to help me bring it to life. As we began building and creating items for our home, we had another idea..... What if we started our own business and offered our creations to others who share the same love and passion for decorating as we do. Here we are, 17 years later, sharing our creations and designs with friends everywhere.

Good Morning and Happy Thursday????
(Not Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday!!) 
Where has this week gone?  
I had quite an adventure this morning that was very unexpected!   Eric left yesterday to be with our son at Scout Camp for a couple days.  I must admit, something interesting always happens and usually it has something to do with me, having to do something I know nothing about.  I have mentioned many times before that I married a farm boy and I didn't have one pet growing up.  So this whole farming & animal thing is a little hard for me because frankly, feeding and watering my cat is about all I do with our animals.    Eric has always told me he will take care of all the living things that do not live in our home, which he always has done, UNTIL HE IS NOT IN TOWN and the animals decide to do things they are not supposed to do.  

I was getting ready for the day and received a call from my sweet friend letting me know that our horses had worked their way out of the fenced area and were now heading at a quick speed southbound on the road. My first thought was...... well.............we don't need to go into that, but let's just say AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!  Thank goodness my oldest son (Ky, almost 16) did not go to scout camp and was close by at his grandpa's working on their farm.  My next thought was I should get in the car and find the horses (as if I would know what to do with them once we found them)  Then the doorbell rang.  My sweet neighbor Cole (well he is 15 and probably doesn't want to be called sweet, but to me, he is sweet) kindly told me that our horses were out.  I looked at him and said "Will you help me?"  He has been raised around horses his whole life, so this wasn't a problem to him.  He and his grandpa took off after the horses and I quickly taught myself how to start and drive our four wheeler.  (Yep, I didn't know how to do that either, but it is amazing how quickly we learn things when we have too).  Did I mention, someone borrowed our car and Eric had the truck, so the four wheeler was my only option besides my feet?  

Thankfully other neighbors came to the rescue along with my father-in-law the horses were finally captured and brought back to the field where they should have been to begin with.  I am so grateful nobody was hurt and everything turned out ok.  Chloee gave credit to the prayer she offered asking Heavenly Father to keep the horses and everyone safe.  Shortly after that, Eric called to see "How My Morning Was Going?"  I sweetly told him the story.  Well ok, I had a little sharpness in my voice and I told him of our fun morning we had without him.   I guess we shouldn't be surprised because every time he leaves something like this happens.  I just have to say I am so grateful for such amazing neighbors and friends.  We couldn't live in a better place.
We Love You All!!!
